humanity that it has to cure. lastly, wake up to the idea that the iranians themselves have told us what a intend in a nuclear exchange. again, the president said, the application of an atomic bomb would not leave anything in israel. the same thing would just produce damages in the muslim world. in other words, israel would forever and instantly be wiped off the map, whereas the muslim nation of 1.8 billion people would indoor with some damage. endure with some damage. y that itssly applie worked in the past, it will work in the future is unwarranted. we are assured by the other side that deterrence will work. they do not know, and we do not know if it will work or not. imagine the risk if they are wrong. 6 million jews are dead. the eradication of israel. hyper proliferation in the middle east and iranian domination of the middle east and the oil economy of the world. do any of you want to live with that? thank you very much. [applause] >> ladies and gentlemen, it is clear why people have called this debate one of the toughest global foreign-policy challenges of a generation. the have h
, there are over 400 specific disabilityish -- disability issues in the database. and lastly, the u.s. census will be releasing later in the year data on how many people with disabilities actually voted. it'll be broken down by category and by types of disabilities. and in the cases of the larger jurisdictions, um, there'll even be data. um, there were 14,700,000 people with disabilities who voted in 2008. that's still a 7% gap with between the disabled and able-bodied in terms of voter participation. poll worker training is, um, is extremely important. some of the problems that we saw not only in the election, but in previous election that link back to poll worker training are the machines aren't turned on. the poll workers don't know how to turn on the accessible machine. the poll workers pressure people not to use the accessible machine. poll workers quite inappropriately looking at a person with a disability and saying you're not competent to vote. this happens over and over again. that is illegal, it is morally offensive, and it happens lots of times in every election if lots of places -
identify troubled individuals earlier and get them the help that they need. lastly, in addition to -- in addition, i personally support the creation of a national commission on domestic terrorism, violence and crime in america. . it would examine the issues of violent crime and prevention and look at what government can do on a local, state, and national level to prevent attacks such as those we witnessed in newtown, aurora, tucson and virginia tech. yesterday, as mayor of philadelphia, i also announced and put forward for our city something i refer to now as the sandy hook principles. these principles are a call to action for corporations to heed the basic core values of american citizens in promoting the health, safety, and well being of our communities. the objective of these is to establish a baseline standard for responsible conduct of their business. as i share these principles with many other mayors from around the country, we expect to be reviewing and discussing them in the days ahead. let me be very clear, however. strengthening our gun laws should not have to wait for
surplus from the smallest to the top, the snowballing strategy and lastly develop a hardball strategy, call them before they call you. always know that the best time to negotiate with creditors could be at the end of the month because they're trying to collect commissions so all of these things are little tips and strategies to make sure you put the ball in your hands and start standing on the fact that you will be debt free by the end of 2013. >> what about investing savings to get out of debt? how risky is that? >> well essentially i mean debt is, it should be a short term strategy to try to eliminate it, credit card debt or collections debt. investing should be a long-term strategy so you never want to try to use a long-term strategy to pay down short-term debt. investing should be, i see a lot of individuals saying i can invest $10 in this stock today and hopefully it will be the next where i can take down that and pay all of my debt. that's too risky. it's not atlantic city slot machines, this is investing. you want a dollar cost investment strategy that's five years or more but
their obligations and following the law and regulations and regulations that are established and lastly, the physical layout has to be revisited. there has to the maximum number of precincts that the location can only hold and to add on with that, you have to be prepared to increase the size of the staff and machines and processes and being able to scale up for the larger locations you might have so i think that is important and one of the areas we need to address, one size doesn't fit all. we don't look at one system for every location. we need to make sure we look at the size of the location as well as management of the precinctss within the location. thank you. >> one thing i would like you to consider in the closing statement is advice that you would give to other jurisdictions that find themselves in a battleground state. earlier today we heard there were ten states that were identified as meeting that criteria. for some like ohio, pennsylvania, cloud ground in many ways that there were some state foot for the first time found themselves under the scrutiny you referred to particula
that will present identity theft and tend hiring of future unthorsed workers and lastly, we establish an improved process for e admitting future workers to serve our work force needs while protecting all workers. other bipartisan senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals. but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there is more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act. but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. we recognize that in order to pass bipartisan legislation none of us can get everything we want. that's why our framework says we can address the status of people living here
't seen, charles alluded to this lastly, are the social dislocation talks of this. that is to say, when we started "the weekly standard" in 1995, the worst, very good piece, but would make you laugh if you would like to look at it was by a criminologist and sociologist was called here come the super predators. and the argument was that we had created a generation of 17-year-olds, youth, whose fathers had been in prison, never seen a strong family, none of that. and basically they were on the way to creating a crime wave the likes of which we had never seen. that is one of the great humbling moments of my life as an editor. wonderful piece, perfectly argued and it made absolute sense at the time that we published it. and it was so wildly wrong that it's not 18 years later. you know, we have now lived through a 20 year decline in crime. new york city last week, not one person was killed last week in new york city. that sounds like you should celebrate something like that. >> that's a big. >> john has been out of town. >> that's right. someone mispronounce my name and i was -- but it's a real
. lastly, measure your time here
in the database. lastly, the u.s. census will be releasing later in the year data on how many people with disabilities actually voted. it will be broken down by category and types of disabilities and in the cases that the larger jurisdictions, there will even be data. there were 14,700,000 people with disabilities who voted in 2008. that is still a 7% cap between disabled and able-bodied voter participation. poll worker training is extremely important. some of the problems we saw in the selection, but previous elections that link back to poll worker training machines be turned off. the poll workers pressure people not to use the machine. poll workers quite an approach really looking at a person with a disability insane this happens over and over again. that is the legal. it is morally offensive and it happens lots of times in every election a month to places. i want to commend the district because they used testing after training for poll workers. i think that is essential and it's not just to teach with the poll worker knows, but to teach election officials book points the training
mandates. states should be given increased flexibility to create efficiencies and achieve results. lastly, congress should not impose maintenance of effort provisions of states as a condition of receiving federal funding. in other words, it states receive federal cuts, washington should not demand the same level of service without providing the same level of funding. essentially, all of these points can and will be coming down to flexibility and partnership. we need the flexibility to take care of the unique needs of our citizens and the challenges of our states. what we do not need is a one- size-fits-all solution or more unfunded federal mandates passed on to our states. the need to be treated as partners, not underlings. we want to work to implement good public policy. as we told congressional leaders, reducing the deficit by shifting costs to the state is not indicative of the good partnership. whether it is deficit reduction or other pressing national issues, we feel the two principles will guide these relationships with the federal government and the state. the principles are the fl

policy that reflects, again, the dynamics of the region as they really are today. lastly, i think this is an opportunity for the committee to finally do the work that it should have been doing for years. when you read the record and realize we have never done an authorization of the state department in the six years i have been here, we have never looked at how foreign aid has been spent. we have never done a top to bottom review. it is something people like you come to this position, look at as something that is healthy. there was mention of cost. i was disappointed with the arb when the first thing that came out of the mouths of people i respect was money, money, money. this committee would have no idea whether the appropriate amount of money is being spent or if that could have prevented what was happening -- what happened because we have never had an authorization. i want to close again by thanking you for your service, thanking you for your friendship, thanking you for your transparency, and i certainly look forward to your testimony. i know it will be presented in a way that
, they paid off a lot of debt. lastly, there's money on the sidelines to come in. that could fuel a rally. of course, there are cons because it's not always good news. the first one is, and i think you have to be concerned with this, the outlook for the u.s. fiscal picture. that could be a problem, especially going into march or february when we have the debate in washington. that could be a problem. also, profit growth. while it's up, the rate of growth is slowing a bit. and to some professionals, that's a concern. >> those are things to look at. for a lot of people, they pulled back because they were concerned about their future and their retirement savings in many cases. >> as they should be. >> looking at this, based on your age, how does that factor in to whether or not you should invest and how involved you should be? >> well, a general rule of thumb is the younger you are, the more money you have in stocks. what you should always have is a diversified portfolio. you should always have money in stocks, bonds, maybe commodities like gold, a smaller percentage, 5% to 10% at the most.
to senator menendez talking about the motivation for the legislation. [video clip]>> lastly, as someone who is an advocate of making sure that our economy is strong as a result of immigration reform, and also that we preserve a core value of family unification. how do we do that in a way that is smart and promotes illegal immigration as opposed to having families divided for so long and then pressures on to make choices on becoming reunified. i believe we can take care of all of those issues. host: is that a good reason to push legislation forward? guest: i like that better than the political reason. some have cited we need immigration reform because republicans have not won elections but i do not think we should set our public policy on immigration on challenges we might have elect orally. the -- electoraly. we should set our agenda on what is the most fair way to deal with the challenges, as currently the system is broken. it is not working for anybody. it is not working in the urban immunities, and certainly not in the counties that i represent in eastern indiana. we need to keep clear g
not just in mali, but across west africa in general. lastly, the aussie/dollar is down, too. there is some risk coming out in this risk off despite stocks doing better. the dollar/yen had punched through 90. it's now below 89. that was above 1 is.25. it's moving back to some of its gains. so some major levels hit in forex today, guys. it's not just about 1500 on the s&p. although to be sure, people around the world will be watching that level, as well. back over to you. >> kelly, are you behind the jap foes because they are the ultimate kainsians at this point? >> no. what i love, joe, what i'm dying to see if finally whether this experiment, now that they've decided they're going to be extremely bold again and we'll see whether the activity really does follow. at least the rhetoric is there. it's been two or three decades of status quo in japan. as one analyst put it the other day, it feels as though time has stopped in japan. the reason why i'm so interested in the story is i want to know if this is finally going to change anything. we're starting to see a little bit of evidence there. 9
for the jobs of the future. lastly, on your question regarding what is the magic plan out there on how to solve the debt -- i don't think there is one. i think it is going to take all of us working together with the president to come up with the balanced approach. no one person, i think, has the answer. and it is going to require all of us coming to the table, debating these issues in ways that keep the people of this country at the forefront and coming up with the best answer possible to move our country forward. host: on twitter -- as you were ben wants to know how the housing industry is doing in nevada. guest: nevada lead the nation in the house of foreclosure and my -- was bump worst hit. the city of north las vegas we have the highest rate of home foreclosures in the country for some time. now, good news, our home values are beginning to creep back up. there is a report out this week that said home values will continue to increase in 2013. but the problem right now is those who bought their homes who did not lose them to foreclosure, nearly 60 percent of them in southern nevada are underw
this together today who contributed to this spectacular event. lastly want to remind everyone that there is an opportunity to submit comments for the record you can submit comments to us and one of two ways either by mail at the u.s. commission on civil rights office of the general counsel here at 1331 pennsylvania avenue nw washington, d.c. 20425. or you can send an e-mail, public comments at usccr.gov. we look forward to preparing the report. you have a motion that he wanted to make. >> [inaudible] not for the public understand the topic. we have 45 days from today to submit your public comments and then we look forward to preparing and sending our report with finding the recommendation about what we've learned here today. thank you. it's now 2:45 come and we adjourn this hearing. she had been talking about this dream that he had. she talked about it for years, the american dream come and then it had become his dream and he'd been in the trade just a few months before, and he talked about if i have a dream that america will someday realize these principles in the declaration
quality assurance. third, poor security. fourth, questionable sustainability. lastly, corruption. let's talk about inadequate planning. we are at risk now of wasting billions of dollars if the agencies charged with implementing new programs and constructing new facility is to not first answer some basic questions. i have been in washington 30 something years. i almost fell off the stage. [laughter] i came from ohio. maybe i keep this midwestern approach to issues, sort of basic simple questions that you would ask if you were buying a house, buying a car, or trying to lecture your daughter on what school to attend. sort of simple questions, logical questions. these questions are not being asked first -- are not being answered, i should say, in afghanistan. questions such as, are these programs and buildings needed? have you asked the afghans if they want them? have you coordinated it with any of the other organizations working for either of the u.s. government or the international community? have we designed them to meet any specific need that the afghans have? and have redesigned them
